For the fourth year Prosper Portland partnered with Oregon Best to present Eco-Capital Connections, and event to showcase local green tech companies and connect them with potential investors.

Held in conjunction with BestFest on Wednesday, September 14, the event focused on growing our small and promising new business ventures by connecting them to institutions that can provide funding, commercialization and the ability to offer new distribution channels. Local participating businesses were primarily green manufacturing firms offering more opportunities and better pay for low- and middle wage workers than the national economy as a whole.
